Proper handling makes sure your recycling efforts have a positive environmental impact and that material doesn’t end up in the landfill.


Don't let your holidays go to waste

There are many ways to avoid sending materials to the landfill over the holidays, including using reusable or recylable packaging and gift wrap. Here are some tips to reduce your environmental impact:

  • Remove all tape, plastic film, twist ties and other objects before recycling cardboard packaging
  • Break down and flatten all cardboard boxes, with bundles no larger than 75 x 75 x 20 cm
  • Try to avoid using foil-based paper, as it is not recyclable
  • Recycle paper-based wrapping paper and remove all tape, ribbons and bows

Tips for setting out materials in winter

  • Ensure your waste can be easily seen by collection staff
  • Refrain from using white garbage bags, which can be difficult to see in snowy conditions
  • Avoid placing garbage and recycling on top of snow banks by shoveling out an area to place it at ground level
